Wanderer

Wanderer, your footsteps are

the road, and nothing more

wanderer, there is no road,

the road is made by walking

.

By walking one makes the road,

and upon glancing behind

one sees the path

that never will be trod again

.

Wanderer, there is no road,

only wakes upon the sea

.
Antonio Machado, Spanish poet, 1875-1939
